About a month or two ago I was sent a link to a very funny video. The video was a seven minute piece from the stand up act of Dan Nainan (www.nainan.com). I was an instant fan. Being half Japanese and half Indian, Nainan goes on to say that he is “both Harold and Kumar”. That’s the just beginning as the laughs continue to roll throughout the clip.
Dan wasn’t always a comedian as he was Senior Engineer with Intel before he started making a career out of making us laugh. His fear of speaking onstage led him to partake in a comedy class where a career in comedy would be in his future. Fortunately for the comedic world Dan cashed in stock options, hit the road as a comedian, and hasn’t looked back ever since.
Have you ever tried to watch a comedy special a family member but had to change the channel due to its content? Maybe it didn’t offend you, but how many people want to listen to the many ways a guy will attempt to get laid with his mom in the room. Dan Nainan is just the opposite as his comedy is clean, yet very funny. Not only is his act clean, but he also promotes a clean, green living lifestyle “simply because if we don’t, we won’t be around very much longer.”
